In 4th grade the students learn about early Utah settlers and the trappers that came through this area. One of the assignments was writing a paper with mountain man language in it. I so remember doing that when I was a kid. It brought back some memories. At the end of the unit the whole fourth grade had a mountain man rendezvous where they made crafts, traded beaver skins for things at the country store, had a three legged race and arm wrestled each other. How fun is that? They even were encouraged to dress up. I helped out that day, so Reanne and I dressed up together in our pioneer garb.
Isn't she cute?
